Community Organizing as a White House Strategy

Hosted by  • 

President Obama turned community organizer once again today, trying to rev-up last year's grassroots army of volunteers. Will they use email, Facebook, phone calls and local meetings to help him govern the way they helped him campaign? Also, GM bondholders accept a government deal to help ease the company into bankruptcy, and allied forces have increased alert levels in response to what they call "a grave threat" from North Korea.  We talk with a veteran of 11 visits to North Korea about this week's nuclear test and threats of escalation.
